Magickal Properties for Walnut

Planetary Association: Moon, Saturn
Gender Association: Feminine and Masculine 
Elemental Association: Earth, Spirit

Other Magical Properties: The best word to describe the energy of this wood is "introspective."  It is not for those with flights of fancy, but rather for those who seek to explore their own personal energy and the "here and now."  It is good for blocking out emotional energy so that one may focus upon the task at hand.

This wood couples reason with intuition to help a person grow spiritually and to heal themselves from
within. A quiet, unassuming wood, black walnut can help us to get in touch with ourselves and the Earth. 

                             Magickal Properties for Maple

Planetary Association: Moon, Jupiter
Gender Association: Feminine
Elemental Association: Spirit, Water

Other Magical Properties: Maple is a fascinating a beautiful wood due largely to the great deal of variation in its appearance.  Some maple wood is without any interesting grain, while some has an amazing wavy (called "curly") appearance with remarkable translucence.  And some maple is known as "Bird's Eye" maple because it has tiny little spots in the grain, like miniature knotholes, throughout the wood.  And still other maple is "spalted," or crossed with very dark lines within the grain.  It is sometimes hard to tell that all of these woods come from the same type of tree.

Maple is one of the most spiritual woods in existence.  Because of this, the primary use of the wood is that of spiritual healing.  It is also amazing when working with moon magick.

Maple is a traveler's wood.  Those who are always on the move and changing will feel right at home with this type of energy.  It allows a person to focus in on the choices in any situation, eliminating luck and chance.  It enhances intellectual pursuits and learning.

Padauk Wand


                                                                           
Designer/Crafter: Monica L. Brown owner of Natural Craft Wands
Wood Used: Padauk
List Price: $30.00

Magickal Properties for Padauk

Planetary Association: Mars
Gender Association: Masculine
Elemental Association: Fire

Other Magical Properties: A powerful yet chaotic wood, Padauk is not at all recommended for those new to The Craft.  The energy of this wood is constantly changing, randomly fluctuating.  It would, however, be an amazing wood for healing magic if one could learn to harness the chaotic energy within.  In the hands of the inexperienced, it would likely do more harm than good.

Other Magical Properties: Bloodwood is a remarkable wood mainly for its ability to utilize elemental energies.  The wood itself can channel and enhance the affect of all elemental energies, but the degree to which it can do so seems to depend upon the person utilizing the wood.  This can be determined by your astrological sign.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

Bloodwood would enhance your ability to utilize water energy if you are a Pisces far more greatly than if you were an Aries, for instance.  Likewise, a Pisces may find bloodwood nearly useless when working with the element of fire, because that element is the opposite of the primary element of the Pisces

The Race To Turtle Mountain

So today is a bright and beautiful day the sun is out and its super warm... When ever we get a nice day like this we take our 2 turtles (Mama Turtle and Papa Turtle) and we put them in our little stone pond to swim and sun bathe and there's a net over the top so they "CANT" get out... WELL Papa Turtle got sneaky on us and he some how climbed out and was roaming our back yard lol we looked and looked for him and we found nothing I was starting to get sad thinking I have lost my Papa Turtle so I went inside and got my 3 year old pit bull Kyan and we went back outside. I got Ky super excited and I told her to go find him we looked for about 5 minutes and I watch kyan go over to this mountain of dirt and bark by the garden and I see her sniffing it and digging at it and then poof she flips out Papa Turtle! She picks him up and runs him over to me I was so amazed and so happy to see him I grabbed Papa Turtle and thanked kyan for finding him she got her favorite treat and a new tennis ball to play with. She is such a wonderful blessing in my life i don't know what i would do without my special little helper.
